TransfoPower industries ( Pvt ) Limited is a private house that grew from a bantam seed to a elephantine tree. Its roots were laid by three friends who all belonged to Engineering backgrounds. One of the friends, viz. , Fawad Shamsi was the instigator of this thought. His male parent belonged to the really successful Waves Refrigeration ” company and it was he who encouraged his boy to come up with a company that belonged to roots of technology.
Transfopower Industries ( Private ) Limited was established in 1993 to fabricate distribution transformers ( Pole Mounted & A ; Kiosks ) , power transformers and particular intent transformers to run into the demand for the local market i.e. : WAPDA, KESC, AJK and Private Sector every bit good as export markets.
Soon, the house is fabricating Transformers from 5KVA to 5000KVA for WAPDA Area Electricity Boards, KESC, AJK and the Private Sector like Housing Societies, Shopping Plazas, Fuel Stations and Industries ( Sugar, Textile, Cement, and Engineering etc. ) . Besides Furnace Transformers have been manufactured for steel Millss in Pakistan and Africa.
They besides maker Special Purpose Transformers designed for Specific Application.
Their transformers are designed by a squad of qualified applied scientists. The fabrication procedure is supervised by experient applied scientists and a rigorous quality control is assured at all phases. Trials consequently to relevant criterions are carried out before despatch. Transfopower is ISO 9001:2000 Certified Company.
The company produces merchandises such as distribution transformers, power transformers, furnace transformers, dry type transformers, and non-flammable transformers. They besides provide for particular demands of the clients by fabricating transformers harmonizing to the demands of their clients.
The company consists of three members at the top. They are the innovators of the house and besides the three chief board members are equal stockholders every bit good. This is chiefly due to the fact that they were equal investors at the start of the house.
The organisational construction of Transopower is a reasonably simple one. Top direction includes three CEO ‘s of the company to which the center directors straight report to. They are finally responsible for the full organisation. Under the top directors lie the center directors who are besides section directors e.s general director, functional director, undertaking director. These directors besides perform as first-line directors it is a little house and they are straight responsible for the work of the operating employees. They control the full work force that works under them. There are a sum of 350 employees, out of which 256 are low-line labourers, 2 are directors and the remainder of the 3 are the CEO ‘s.
The house ‘s mission is to supply maximal satisfaction to its clients through satisfying merchandises ( transformers, generators etc ) . Initially, the house started by merely supplying fix and care installation for clients but later it expanded and started bring forthing transformers. This operation expanded further and Transfopower culminated into a proper, registered house. In 1993, the house started with a factory country of 3 kanal merely and a work force of 10 employees. This was because the company had merely started and was n’t financially really strong. Soon, it is working at a factory country of 73 kanals and a labour force of 350 employees.
The beginnings of information used in this study are the cyberspace, our text book and the interviews. Largely the information is obtained from the interviews that we conducted from the CEO and General Managers of Transfo Power. No articles, library stuff or any other signifier of literary stuff was used for the preparation of this study.
Analysis of the house ‘s current Human Resource Management program:
Transfo Power is non a really big scaly house due to which it does non hold excessively many specified and organized sections. During our research we found that the company does non hold a separate Human Resource Department but they have merged it with their Administrative section. So they have a Human Resource and Admin Department which works as a individual unit. Another ground that we were told for non holding a alone HRM section is that the company does non hold to cover with hiring and managing of 1000s of employees like most of the transnational houses do. There are about 350 employees working in the house from which 250 employees are the low line workers. As we entered to the Transfo Power ‘s central office with our mention missive, we were entertained by the disposal and were given cards at the entryway after which we were guided towards the GM ‘s office. The card read Visitors ” . This showed that the employees perform their responsibilities in a systematic mode.
Mr. Shoaib Dar is the GM Finance of Transfo Power. His occupation description includes handling and pull offing histories of the house. He has to describe to the CEO of the house about the net incomes or losingss that occur in a peculiar month. Histories include outgos like going, nutrient, fuel, machinery care and repairing. He interviews the appliers of managerial degree.
We besides interviewed GM plants of the company, Mr. Ahsan Islam. He is responsible for the care of the machines and assures that they are in a proper on the job status. Furthermore he assigns twenty-four hours to twenty-four hours occupations to the employees working in the mill.
The concluding determination doing authorization lies with the CEO of the house, Mr. Fawad Shamsi. The Chief executive officer and his spouses recruit, interview, hire and appraise executive degree campaigners.
We interviewed the above Personnel and gathered some information to analyse the current system of Human Resource in the house. As mentioned above, the company has a alleged Human Resource and Admin section but most of the Human Resource direction is done by Executives and CEO ‘s. What we found by questioning these individuals is that their Human Resource and Admin section is merely responsible for maintaining the record of attending of the low degree employees who work in the mill. It caters some other minor administrative duties like accepting or rejecting the leave applications and easing the employees with their demands and demands consequently.
A formal occupation description is given to all employees on the really first twenty-four hours of their occupation though it is non really purely followed by the employees. These occupation descriptions are non updated seasonably. Foremans are appointed for every unit in the mill who ensures that each worker performs his occupation right. The workers can interact straight with the chief who reports to the supervisor of the several section. These supervisors are responsible for helping the directors and helper directors.
The company holds a meeting of the senior degree staff members with the CEOs after every two old ages. Every facet like company ‘s public presentation is discussed in the meeting. They carry a tendency analysis which includes the analysis of the employees come ining and go outing the company.
The figure of occupation vacancies, the recruiting method and the accomplishments required for the vacant occupation are defined in the meeting.
The procedure of Personnel planning is carried out by the company executives. The GMs make monthly studies of figure of employees working under their sections which are so forwarded to the CEO. The GM themselves are responsible for enrolling and engaging employees of their several sections. They write a study after analysing campaigner ‘s file and questioning him and direct the concluding paperss to the Chief executive officer with his recommendations. Finally it is the Chief executive officer who decides whether to accept or reject the application.
The hiring procedure is systematic. Normally the hiring is done on the footing of mentions, that is, a new employee is hired for the vacant station at the low degree by the mention of an older employee already working in the house. Direct applications are besides a chief beginning of campaigners using for the occupation. These Walk-Ins are supposed to go forth their files in the office. The files are entertained farther by the disposal. The company merely calls back the campaigners for the interview who they think is eligible for the occupation. They do n’t reply the applications that they do n’t name for the interview. Normally the company does n’t publicize for the vacant occupations in any newspaper nor in any website, but they advertise for really important stations and for executive occupations. Last clip they advertise in 2009 for the station of Assembly Manager ” . The individual who was eligible to use for this occupation was supposed to be a mechanical applied scientist. A formal occupation description was published in the newspaper. There is besides a subdivision of occupation vacancies on the official web site of the company.
Every employee has to travel through a formal interviewing procedure before being a portion of the house. At the low degree the interviews are carried by the supervisors of the respective section which is non a good prepared interview. The supervisor asks random occupation related inquiries, makes a file, and so sends it to the GMs. The interviews for the executive occupations are panel interviews. The panel consists of the company proprietors who have to make up one’s mind and do programs for achieving the hereafter ends and aims of the house. These are good structured interviews and the panel is already prepared with the inquiries they want to inquire from the applier. Harmonizing to the interviewee the applier ‘s first feeling on the interviewer has a great impact on doing the determination of accepting or rejecting him. He said that a campaigner must be good dressed and show an equal assurance degree to affect him and do him experience that he is responsible plenty to take the vacant place in the house. Transfo power does n’t take the interview from the employees go forthing the house.
Employee testing and Choice:
The choice of employees is done after look intoing their old public presentations by reaching the companies where he has worked antecedently. A background cheque is besides carried out before engaging which does non include look intoing the condemnable record of the applier. The company thinks that background checking is clip devouring and dearly-won. They keep the transcript of their individuality card, birth certification, testimonies and everything needed to follow him if he leaves unreported. Employees who are selected to work for the company are foremost tested. The first hebdomad of their occupation is important as they can be accepted or rejected on the footing of their public presentation. After this there is a six months of proviso period in which the public presentation of the new employees is judged by proving them on the occupation. The technique the company uses in proving the employees is work trying. In this the campaigners are given the existent basic occupation undertakings.
Training and Development:
All the preparation in the house is done on the occupation. New employees are normally trained on the occupation for six months with their salary being paid to them. The house does non pay much attending on the preparation of their employees. They distribute the user ushers or books to the workers who operate machines in the mill and to the Engineering staff.
No formal employee orientation is practiced with the new employee come ining Transfo Power, though the employee is felt comfy and at easiness by the friendly environment of the company. The interactions between the same line workers are instead really informal and with the high degree staff it is a spot formal. There are state of affairss when the employees are given undertakings which were non the portion of their occupation description. For these undertakings and excess work the employees are non paid yet they are paid for the excess clip they work for their ain occupation. Promotions are given on the footing of public presentations and senior status of the employees.
Pay programs and Retirement:
Transfo power has non experienced any worker strikes yet. They claim that they take precautional steps to avoid unsated employees. The precautional program is to give wages to the workers on clip, by paying for the excess hours they work and by allowing them leaves. For an employee, 30 absences are allowed in a twelvemonth. Absences more than 30 go a serious affair to be noticed. The board decides whether to pardon or decline the employees application depending on the state of affairs. The minimal wage of low degree mill workers is same that the authorities has set. Harmonizing to the interviewee, wage of the Engineering staff and the upper degree employees is decided by the market, on which an one-year increase of five per centum is made due to rising prices in the state. The employees from low degree to CEOs are provided with the Group life Insurance ” which is a portion of their wage programs. Transfo Power has good defined retirement and pension programs. Ten per centum of the wage of each employee and ten per centum from the company, both added together, is transferred to a separate history called Staff Provident Fund Account. This history is a separate entity with has now nil to make with the company. The summed up per centum sum of the employees in the history is invested in stocks. The net income incurred is besides transferred to the fund history. This history works as an surrogate to the pensions given to the employees after their retirements. The retired employee withdraws his portion from this provident history which is the lone sum he gets after go forthing the company.
The HRM program for Transfo Power
Transfo Power does non hold any formal method of occupation analysis. After analysing Some cost effectual and non so complex methods, are given below:
Observation method: ( low line workers )
For low line workers, like transformer assembly programs and Transformer winders, observation method should turn out truly utile. The supervisors can take notes while detecting these workers. Then to unclutter out the points noted, the supervisor should interview the workers about their activities and responsibilities. And in the terminal compile everything.

For applied scientists and interior decorators working in the house a diary log, will really let to cognize what do they really make? What are their occupation responsibilities? What are activities they did all they?

They should decidedly utilize PAQ for occupation analysis. As this is a quantitative method so it should truly assist the steadfast determine wage.The analysis signifier are available on the web site. From The website1 of PAQ.As the house is all about production of transformers. We have taken out a occupation analysis signifier for Transformer assembly program.
The remainder of the signifier is attached in appendix.
Job Description & A ; Job specification:
By utilizing the methods above to roll up the information. A occupation description should be developed in such a manner that if a new employee reads it. He or she should understand what the occupation really is. What is required of him/her? A occupation description should be able to reply basic inquiries of what the occupation Is and who is right to execute it.
For case the occupation description2 of a transformer assembly program should be like this

Forces Planing and prediction:
Transfo Power does non hold any formal forces be aftering procedure. Personnel be aftering truly of import to take down the cost. It allows the house to cognize whether a certain place demands to be filled and how. Sing technological alterations, upgrading or downgrading of merchandise, tranfo power truly needs to calculate the forces demands.
Tendency analysis being the most basic and cost effectual should truly assist the house forecast the demand for forces. Merely by analyzing the past record of employment demands prediction can be done. But cognizing the demand is non adequate Transfopower demands to happen ways as how will these demands be fulfilled. For applied scientists, interior decorators, supervisors, directors POSITION REPLACEMENT CARD should be used. It will let Transfopower to engage fill in the place from interior. This non merely will cut down the cost but besides save clip. Replacement chart3 from the book by Gary Dessler has taken and could truly be truly utile for Transfopower.
For the low line workers like transformer winders, electrical constituent animal trainers, and assembly programs most of the occupation should be filled by outside campaigners. To pull the outside campaigners Transfopower should decidedly utilize advertisement
As the house is presently runing in the local Lahore part. So local newspaper should be the best and most cost effectual medium. Besides because Transfopower lacks a formal human resource section they could utilize the aid of employment bureaus. Presently in Lahore there are employment bureaus 4 which provide manpower to houses. Such as on the following page.
Transfopower uses referrals as the major beginning of recruiting. It should go on this attack as it is non merely cost effectual but besides saves a batch of clip. The current employees normally provide good appliers because their ain repute is on the line. It ‘s a good pattern and they should go on it.
Application Form: Application signifier is one of the most utile tools for enrolling. Transfopower uses application signifier ( attached in appendix II ) . But betterment is needed to acquire all the four types of information it should supply.
1. Supply substantial information about campaigners
2.draw decision about advancement and growing
3.Applicant Stability from old record
4.Predict the success of campaigners
This improved complete application signifier 5 is attached in Appendix III.
Employee testing and choice:
As discussed in the analysis subdivision Transfopower does non utilize any proving method before engaging. There is proviso period of six months. Transfopower should integrate some before engaging proving method. This should truly increase their productiveness and besides cut down cost of engaging and fire.
Trial of mechanical comprehension:
This is a must for a house like transfopower. All the 250 workers have to hold this basic mechanical comprehension trial. This trial is truly utile non merely to increase productiveness but besides to cut down any on the occupation accidents. A mechanical comprehension trial 6 is attached in the appendix IV
Q.Which is the most suited tool for flexing any malformations?
sample mechanical concluding inquiry 7

Trial of motor and physical abilities:
Trial of physical strength should besides be used.Becuase a batch of lifting of heavy tools and instrument is done. The inactive strength trial should mensurate abilities such as raising weights. While Dynamic strength trial should mensurate drawing abilities of the workers.
Transfopower has a batch o make with handling of machine, equipment and instrument. Testing the campaigners on work related sample trial should assist to foretell the success of the worker on the occupation. Work samples besides have one of the highest cogency when it comes to assessment. The campaigners can be so marked harmonizing to their actions.
Q. Did the worker cheque spirals before put ining the magnets in the transformer?
Yes 1 platinum
No 0 platinum
During our analysis we mentioned that the supervisor like helper assembly director do hold problem covering with the workers. Integrity trial can truly assist to work out this issue. Not merely will it cut down troubles in covering with supervising, but can besides cut down concern costs by placing persons who are likely to be absent, or engage in other counterproductive behaviour.
Q1. Does it trouble oneself you when your tools are out of topographic point?
Q2. Make you blow clip at work?
Q3.A Do you acquire annoyed when following safety safeguards gets in the manner of your work?
This face to confront unity trial has been attached in Appendix V.
As explained earlier, Transfopower follows an informal interview for the hiring of employees at low degrees of the organisation. It is extremely recommended that they use structured questionnaires to carry on interviews even at low degrees. This will give them a just comparing of the appliers at the clip of hiring.
Transfopower should besides implement the usage of Appraisal interviews in the house. This is of import because the house should cognize whether each employee ‘s public presentation meets the ends of the organisation or non. This will besides supply feedback to the employees and do it easier to improvize redresss that need to rectify errors.
As the company uses no Exit interviews for current employees, they should do it a portion of their current HR program. This will enable the employer to pull out information about the occupation or related affairs that might give the employer an thought approximately why a peculiar employee is go forthing their house when nil wrong has happened in the yesteryear or present times. It will besides give them an thought about the rights and wrongs of the house.
The house should besides utilize a set of other interviews to judge the abilities and behaviour of the appliers. For this intent, we suggest them to utilize interviews that include situational interviews, behavioural interviews, job-related interviews and stress interviews.
Training and Development of employees
The company presently uses direction manuals or ushers for the employees to execute their occupations i.e. they use occupation direction preparation method. The house does n’t utilize a formal preparation procedure for its employees, it is extremely suggested that they should follow a proper preparation procedure. This will assist increase the productiveness of the employees which will increase end product and finally entire gross for the house will lift.
They should do usage of proper on-the occupation preparation methods which include coaching/understudy method. This coaching could be done by an experient worker or a supervisor himself. Job rotary motion is another method that they could utilize which will spread out the cognition of the employees at Transfopower and supply them with accomplishments of the other occupations as good. This is a method which is n’t merely easy to follow but is practically possible and cheap every bit good. Informal acquisition could besides be used. This provides more positive consequences than formal acquisition or preparation.
After the preparation procedure, it is really of import to measure the attempt of the preparation. If this is n’t done, the whole intent of developing the employees goes in vain. It is of import to see whether the clip and resources spent on developing the employees has produced positive consequences or non, did the trainees learn something from the plan or otherwise. For this intent, a controlled experimentation should be implemented to compare informations before and after the procedure of preparation.
The company ‘s current HRM program follows just wage programs. But we would wish urge them to set up wage rates that are in line with the remainder of the prevailing pay rates in Pakistan. For this intent, they should transport out salary study often to see if they are paying the employees harmonizing to the prevailing pay rates. They should besides take into history any rising prices that takes topographic point and should follow up to alter their rewards consequently.
They should pay employees on the footing of the competences they entail, non harmonizing to the occupation rubric. This means that they should pay them harmonizing to the accomplishments and cognition that they hold and the clip, attempt and difficult work that they put in to finish their undertaking. This offers a more strategic ground for puting wage rates.
Transfo Power is a little house with more or less 350 employees working in it. After analysing the current patterns of the company sing the direction of Human Resource we came to cognize that the Executives feel that a separate Human Resource Department is wastage of money. Normally all HRM patterns are done by the Executives like hiring, fire, counterbalancing and measuring. We were told that 350 is a little figure of employees and for this they do n’t necessitate a specific HRM system. In our undertaking we tried to develop a Human Resource Management program for the company which will increase their costs a small spot, but using this to their house will decidedly gain the house in a sense that it will turn faster. This is a general tendency in Pakistan that companies normally do n’t pay much attending on HRM due to which the growing of the companies in Pakistan is non appreciable. But in today ‘s altering tendencies, Globalization and Technology, Human Resource Management plays a really polar function in the growing of houses. So a house, no affair large or little, must hold knowledge about how they can consistently pull off their people ” and use those HRM patterns to add more strength to the company.
